BHA confident of return to action in Britain despite French setback

‘We are making good progress as we prepare for June 1’: BHA confident of racing resumption in Britain despite French suffering shock setback

  • Fench racing in turmoil after the sport was suddenly halted in its key regions
  • The French government stopped any racing in Paris and the north on Tuesday
  • There will be no racing at least until the next review of the transition on June 2
  • Here’s how to help people impacted by Covid-19

The BHA have said the fact French racing has been forced to close tracks in Paris and in the east of the country should have no ramifications for the resumption of racing in Britain.

Racing’s ruling body has steered clear of using overseas jurisdictions whose racing has either continued or resumed as evidence as to why British racing should return.

A spokesman for the BHA said: ‘Our proposal has always been that racing will be ready to return safely in Britain as soon as the UK Government permits the resumption of sporting events.

There will be no more racing at Longchamp, where the sport resumed in France on May 11

‘Our plans are being developed with officials from Public Health England and will be in line with UK government policy. We are making good progress as we prepare for a resumption on June 1.’

Final Government approval for the return of British racing has yet to be received.

Racing returned in France on May 11 at Longchamp but the French Government backtracked when announcing on Tuesday that no track inside Red Zones of high COVID-19 infections rates can now race.

Today’s scheduled meeting at Longchamp has been switched to Deauville on the Normandy coast.

The inside story of Manchester City's first Premier League title

From breaking curfew on nights out in Los Angeles to Roberto Mancini shouting ‘f*** you’ at his ‘cocky’ stars during QPR win, the inside story of Manchester City’s first Premier League title and Sergio Aguero’s last-gasp Hollywood moment

  • It’s eight years since Sergio Aguero’s goal clinched Man City’s first EPL title
  • The Argentine netted against QPR with seconds left, overtaking United at the top
  • It’s an unforgettable moment which has proved the catalyst for City’s dominance
  • But parties glued team together before City ended 44-year wait to be champions
  • Shaun Wright-Phillips even held up QPR bus after the game to see City lift trophy

The actual defining moment, the most spine-tinglingly bewildering single piece of action in Premier League history, was choreographed seconds beforehand. All seemingly lost, Manchester City supporters busy thumping seats in anger, Edin Dzeko equalises with 92 minutes on the clock. Sergio Aguero sprints back to the halfway line and shouts over to Mario Balotelli.

Manchester United had won at Sunderland but this title race was not quite done yet. One more goal. Aguero knew that, telling Balotelli to assume the No 9 role for the remainder of stoppage time, that he would drop deep to hunt for possession. Then the one-two would be on to pick a way through the stubborn back nine of Queens Park Rangers.

Mercifully, Balotelli actually agreed and the rest is best soundtracked by either Peter Drury, Martin Tyler or Guy Mowbray. Balotelli’s solitary assist in English football: an ingenious, largely under-appreciated piece of patience. The goal that defines Aguero as a footballer. Without that divine intervention, City players wonder whether the club would have had the capability to go on and achieve everything since. The heartache of bottling it may have proved too much to bear.

‘We had been a bit cocky beforehand,’ Micah Richards says. ‘But really the feelings was mixed. Everyone was saying, “we’ve got QPR, we’ll p*** this”, but you could also tell people weren’t their normal selves. Deep down it was nerves.’

Nerves turned to dark despair as the minutes flew by. City blew a half-time lead, secured by Pablo Zabaleta, to find themselves 2-1 down in injury time against a 10-man QPR battling for survival. The game appeared up as news filtered through of United’s victory in the north-east, as groans grew louder and with more exasperation at every wayward cross.

Roberto Mancini spent much of the second half in an aimless daze, screaming ‘f*** you, f*** you’ at his players. The bench was in a state of disbelief before one of disarray on 93 minutes, 20 seconds. A first title in 44 years won on goal difference in the final second of the final game to pip their bitter crosstown rivals.

Celebrations were understandably manic. Kit man Les Chapman had paced between the dressing room, players’ lounge and warm-up area throughout the second half, watching the action on monitors, before darting up the tunnel as Aguero’s strike met netting. Joe Hart refused to let a teary Gael Clichy go. Nigel De Jong punched the tunnel wall in relief before the trophy lift, a patch that is now glass for corporates to peer through.

Up in the stands, some members of staff went mad for different reasons. City had not wanted to arrange a team party for fear of jinx in the days prior, so a small committee took it upon themselves to organise one on the quiet at the town hall. ‘They effectively had about 50 grand’s worth of party riding on the game,’ one source says.

Eventually, captain Vincent Kompany took himself to the gym for a period of reflection ahead of City’s first night of the rest of their existence.

Edin Dzeko rose highest to head in City’s equaliser as the clock ticked into stoppage time

Those with intimate knowledge of that squad say that to truly understand the reasons behind City’s triumph – beyond the obvious wealth pumped into the squad – we must be aware of Los Angeles the summer before. Putting it mildly, City’s pre-season tour of America’s west coast was fairly lively.

City would train hard, double sessions in the sweltering heat, before being left to their own devices from late afternoon. It is then when the foundations for their success were laid.

Halfway through the trip, Chapman asked one player how he was enjoying California. ‘It’s the best stag week I’ve ever been on,’ came the reply. ‘Friendships were formed that fortnight,’ Chapman said. ‘That was the story of the season for me – the team spirit. Things like that bond people together.’

Even now, nine years on, there is a reticence by some in divulging too much. Sanctity of a dressing room and all that. There remains a belief that to this day, Mancini is unaware of the majority of what went on.

‘Let’s say we enjoyed it to the fullest,’ Richards says. ‘It’s Hollywood! I genuinely believe LA made us win that league. Clichy had come from Arsenal and was flabbergasted. You know what Arsene Wenger was like with diet.’

After training, players would gorge on burgers and doughnuts on the quieter evenings. Explore Venice Beach and the rest that LA offers on the others. One member of the squad claims he has never witnessed an entire team enjoy themselves as a group quite so much before or since. Richards reveals a tale of that tour’s final night, when at least five went out, tracksuits over clubbing gear until a safe distance from the hotel.

‘Curfew was midnight,’ he says. ‘We had a friend in LA and went out until about two-ish. We weren’t all big drinkers, so let’s sneak out and see what we can do.

‘When we were coming back we found out that Mancini was downstairs in the lobby with all his staff. We had to sneak through the back door, climb up some ladders and go through the back. Somehow we didn’t get caught. We talk about that story all the time. We probably would’ve lost the manager’s trust if we’d been caught.’

Crucially, the players in question all worked closely together on the pitch in the subsequent campaign. ‘It made me trust them a lot more,’ Richards adds. ‘That bond. You wanted to go that extra yard for each other. Yaya Toure had come from Barcelona (the year before) and I couldn’t get two words out of him. By the end of that season I was going to his house for parties.’

During a nerve-wracking second half, City manager Roberto Mancini was in a frenzy, shouting ‘f*** you’ at his players. But the Italian erupted after Aguero scored the golden goal

The club was a whirlwind at that time. Carlos Tevez, who had not toured, dominated the back pages with an on-off move to Boca Juniors and stripped of the captaincy. They remained in big-money pursuit of both Samir Nasri and Aguero, the latter blistering his foot after training in boots too small for him.

Balotelli’s attitude came into question, Mancini branding him ‘unprofessional’ for attempting to backheel when clean through on goal during a friendly against LA Galaxy. The manager was also demanding a clearout of perceived deadwood that never truly materialised.

After a final friendly win over Inter Milan in Dublin before the title charge, the Daily Mail read: ‘City looked a little sluggish in America but the manager looks to have brought his team to the boil perfectly.’ That appraisal certainly stood the test of time.

The drama of that season went until the last second and had been unrelenting on and off the pitch. Tevez was placed on gardening leave for almost six months after refusing to come off the bench during a Champions League tie at Bayern Munich. ‘The manager was told he had to come back. There was never an ounce of animosity from any of the other players,’ Chapman says. ‘None at all. They loved him. Ask any of them about his impact. They would’ve died for each other, those lads.’

With Tevez in Argentina, Balotelli racked up £300,000 worth of damage at his property after setting off fireworks in the bathroom on the eve of a Manchester derby. After ringing a member of staff for help and uncertain why the house alarm would not cease to blare, Balotelli was asked what had actually happened. ‘Well, the bathroom’s on fire.’ Had he called the fire brigade? No. City put him up at the Hilton hotel in town, the team winning 6-1 at Old Trafford a day later and Balotelli scoring twice. The “Why Always Me?” afternoon. Perhaps that weekend best illustrates the season.

Amid all this, they kept winning in one of the greatest title races ever. Mancini left Kompany to take the final 30 seconds of team talks, bonding sessions extended to go-kart racing at Warrington and Belle Vue. The victories kept being ticked off, United at home – secured by the head of Kompany – with three games to go the real seismic night when power began to shift in this part of the world.

But there lay QPR on the final day, a team that likely required a positive result to survive and one, bizarrely, stacked with individuals who had close ties to City. Mark Hughes was Mancini’s predecessor. Nedum Onouha, a City fan, had been a ballboy at the Etihad. Joey Barton, eventually sent off, came through the academy. So too Shaun Wright-Phillips, who had only left the summer prior.

‘We’d seen a hell of a lot at that club,’ Wright-Phillips explains. ‘To be in that position… initially I’d either have to upset City or get relegated with QPR. It was so weird.’

Bolton’s failure to beat Stoke meant QPR were safe no matter what, a result secured seconds before Aguero’s stunning injury-time winner. The QPR defence were actually unaware they were safe, Paddy Kenny’s back four dropping to the ground in unison as the Etihad’s roof came off.

‘QPR stayed up, and I helped in some way to make that happen, and then to be in Manchester to see City win the league, it worked out perfectly for me,’ Wright-Phillips says. ‘Not many people know this but when they actually got to lift the trophy, I was watching by the coach down the side tunnel before we travelled back. The gaffer said it was OK. I just didn’t want to miss it.’

Hearts owner Ann Budge feels SPFL reconstruction task force was disrespected

Hearts owner Ann Budge has accused her Premiership counterparts of being “appallingly disrespectful”, after her task force’s plan to restructure the Scottish football pyramid was dismissed.

Budge has threatened to take further action if a cancellation of the top-flight season is announced, with the Championship, League One and League Two having already ended early.

  • SPFL reconstruction plans scrapped
  • Hearts players accept wage cuts

Budge had hoped to convince clubs to accept a revamped three-division system, which would have swollen the top-flight to 14 teams and allowed Inverness to be promoted, while those in relegation trouble across the Scottish Professional Football League – including Hearts – would retain their current status.

But on Friday it was announced that the reconstruction plans had been scrapped, with the clubs feeling it was “not the right time” due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Hearts are currently four points adrift in the Premiership table and are therefore now facing the drop if it is decided to end the season without playing any more matches.

In a lengthy statement on Saturday, Budge said in part: “No matter what the task force was able to agree, it was always going to fail if the Premiership would not agree to enlarge the top tier.

“Yesterday, it was made very clear that a number of clubs were not prepared to do so and nor were they prepared or interested in discussing the matter further.

“I intimated at the start of the meeting that I had prepared a paper, which I planned to send to them following the meeting, which outlined my arguments in writing as to why they should agree to expand the league.

“They were determined, however, to take a vote as they didn’t want this topic to carry forward to the next meeting.

“This is so appallingly disrespectful to everyone on the task force.”

Budge rejected suggestions her plan had been motivated by self-interest, adding: “It is fundamentally wrong that any club should be unfairly penalised by exceptional decisions that have had to be taken to deal with the current crisis.

“I would stand by that view, regardless of Hearts’ own position.

“If something is wrong, it is wrong and we should all be doing our utmost to correct that wrong.

“To pour more financial hardship on specific clubs, given what we are all going through both now and for the foreseeable future, is both outrageous and shameful.”

Partick Thistle and Stranraer have already had their relegations confirmed from their respective divisions, and non-league champions Buckie Thistle and Kelty Hearts have been denied a chance at promotion.

Murray leaps out of his seat to celebrate winning Virtual Madrid Open

Delighted Andy Murray leaps out of his seat to celebrate winning Virtual Madrid Open in front of devastated David Goffin after clinching tie-break

  • Andy Murray defeated David Goffin 7-5 in tie-break following tense final
  • Former British No 1 had earlier in the day been given spot in the final despite loss
  • Diego Schwarzman had beaten Brit but claimed it was only via technical glitches
  • Murray received £130,000 to donate after his victory in the Virtual Madrid Open 

It might not have the usual challenges presented by the clay courts but Andy Murray has proven he can be just as devastating behind a controller as well as a racket by winning the Virtual Madrid Open.

The Brit triumphed in the final of the tournament having seen off David Goffin 7-5 in a tie-break, leaping off his chair with delight after landing yet another title.

Goffin could only bury his head in his hands as he watched the Brit return an unbeatable crosscourt forehand to secure victory.

Murray  said afterwards: ‘Of all the matches I played, that felt like a proper match, we were a similar level.

‘It was good. I enjoyed it, there’s not much we can do just now, we spend most of the days indoors and can’t get out much so it was a fun thing to do.’

Murray’s success on the virtual court via the Playstation game Tennis World Tour came despite losing earlier in the day in the semi-finals to Diego Schwarzman.

However their last four encounter was plagued by technical issues and bizarre glitches that the Argentine felt were too unfair on the former British and world No 1 and thus offered his place in the final to the 32-year-old.

‘I don’t deserve to be in the final,’ Schwartzman told Murray. ‘You play the final. If you’re in Europe the transmission is much better because of the internet.’

Murray saw off some competitors along the way, even defeating the ‘King of Clay’ Rafael Nadal in the group stage.

Murray’s prize for winning the tournament is £130,000 to give to those most affected by the shutdown of the ATP Tour

After his comprehensive dismantling of Zverev in the quarter-finals, Murray joked he was just too good for the opposition.

The Brit laughed off mischievous accusations from tournament organiser Feliciano Lopez, delivered with a smile, that his rivals were claiming the competition was being fixed in his favour.

‘I know it looks that way but I’m just much better than the other guys,’ said Murray.

The tournament was part of a charity initiative that will donate 50,000 euros (£43,600) to the Madrid Food Bank to help reduce the social impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The winner of each tournament will get 150,000 euros (about £130,000) from which they will be able to decide how much they donate to their colleagues on the tour who have been worst affected by the sport’s shutdown.

‘He is an outstanding coach who has everything’: Kevin-Prince Boateng hails Jurgen Klopp as one of the best managers he’s worked under

  • Kevin-Prince Boateng says Jurgen Klopp is one of the best managers he’s had 
  • Boateng was on loan at Borussia Dortmund under Klopp in 2008-09 season
  • Boateng praised Klopp’s coaching methods and also said that he is ‘very funny’ 

Kevin-Prince Boateng has named Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp as one of the best managers he has ever worked with.

Boateng was coached by Klopp when on loan at Borussia Dortmund in the second half of the 2008-09 season. 

The former Ghana international described Klopp, who was in his first season as Dortmund boss, as being an ‘outstanding trainer’ in addition to being very funny.

‘The hottest and funniest was Klopp. He’s just a great guy who makes you laugh out of the field,’ Boateng told Sport1.

‘He is also an outstanding trainer. Klopp is one who has everything. I celebrate him because he is emotional and doesn’t hide it.

‘He’s like a fan on the pitch. I love that. But I was lucky because I often had the right coach.’

Boateng, who was on loan from Tottenham, made eleven appearances for Dortmund and provided two assists.

His time at Dortmund wasn’t without controversy, with Boateng missing the last two matches of the Bundesliga season after he was suspended for a flying kick on Makoto Hasebe of VfL Wolfsburg.

Dortmund wanted to sign Boateng on a permanent deal but financial restrictions prevented them from doing so and he instead headed to Portsmouth.

Klopp remained at Dortmund until 2015, when he took charge of Liverpool.

Boateng has had an interesting and varied career which has seen him play for a host of clubs, including AC Milan (twice), Schalke and Barcelona. He is currently on loan at Besiktas from Fiorentina.

FIFA begins handover of millions to struggling national associations

FIFA begins handover of around £121million to its struggling national associations whose finances have been badly damaged by the coronavirus pandemic

  • The governing body said its 211 member countries would receive £404,000 
  • FIFA president Gianni Infantino described it as the ‘first step’ of a wider plan 
  • They also said the next stages of its financial relief plan are being worked on 
  • Here’s how to help people impacted by Covid-19

FIFA is releasing around £121million to its national associations whose finances have been badly affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

The game’s world governing body said each of its 211 member countries would receive £404,000 (500,000 US dollars) in the coming days plus any entitlement under the Forward 2.0 development programme.

FIFA president Gianni Infantino described it as the ‘first step’ in a wider plan to assist those struggling due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

FIFA is releasing around £121million to its national associations due to the coronavirus crisis

‘The pandemic has caused unprecedented challenges for the entire football community and, as the world governing body, it is FIFA’s duty to be there and support the ones that are facing acute needs,’ he said.

‘This starts by providing immediate financial assistance to our member associations, many of which are experiencing severe financial distress. This is the first step of a far-reaching financial relief plan we are developing to respond to the emergency across the whole football community.’

FIFA said the money represented operational funding for 2019 and 2020. Under normal circumstances, the associations would only receive full funding upon fulfilment of specific criteria such as the organisation of a set number of men’s, women’s and youth competitions, but was providing it to protect its members.

The game’s world governing body said its 211 member countries would receive £404,000

The English Football Association announced earlier this month that it could lose up to £150m as a result of the pandemic. It has implemented wage cuts, initially for the next three months, with its top earners including England manager Gareth Southgate sacrificing 30 per cent of their salary.

FIFA said the next stages of its financial relief plan are being worked on and would be communicated in due course.

Tranmere chairman and former FA chief executive Mark Palios told the PA news agency last month that the English Football League should look to tap into the FIFA fund.

FIFA president Gianni Infantino described it as the ‘first step’ in a wider plan of assistance

Clubs in the EFL are facing severe financial difficulties because of the loss of matchday revenue and in many cases have furloughed staff under the Government’s coronavirus job retention scheme.

Palios, who is a member of the EFL’s financial working group, said: ‘If FIFA has raised some kind of fund like this, then yes we would like to get our fair share of it into the EFL.’

FIFA is reported to have cash reserves of around £2.2bn.

70% of counties could go bust if Hundred payments are halted

ECB warned that 70 PER CENT of counties could go bust if they don’t receive their full instalments for the Hundred

  • The ECB are under immense pressure to save counties amid coronavirus crisis
  • They are under pressure to pay counties their full instalments for the Hundred
  • Counties were promised an annual £1.3million each when tournament launched
  • So far the counties have been paid half of that sum by the governing body
  • Learn more about how to help people impacted by COVID

The ECB are under pressure to save counties by paying them their full instalments for the Hundred despite the competition’s imminent postponement.

Counties were promised an annual £1.3million each when the ECB launched their widely criticised 100-ball format and they have so far been paid half of that.

But they do not know if they will receive the remaining £650,000 once this year’s Hundred is called off, with one chief executive warning 70 per cent of counties could go bust if the payments stop.

The widely-criticised Hundred tournament is set to be postponed due to the coronavirus crisis

The county chief told Sportsmail: ‘In our budgeting, we have assumed the full £1.3m from the Hundred will be paid for the full year. If we lose half of that, it would make it tight for everybody —and that would be a problem.

‘Every single county would have issues. If that £650,000 didn’t land, I think 17 out of 18 counties would have a negative cash flow.

‘There are 18 counties and we are talking £650,000, which is around £12m. I don’t think the ECB are going to let 50, 60 or 70 per cent of counties go under for the sake of £12m.

‘In the context of a £1.3billion television deal, we are not talking about a lot of money. If it’s £12m to keep everybody afloat, I hope that £12m will be found.’

Counties received their first Hundred instalment in February and the ECB expedited the monthly payments up until July as part of the £61m rescue package they announced last month.

But a decision to delay the Hundred’s launch is set to be ratified at Friday’s ECB board meeting.

And the ECB hinted over the weekend they may not be able to distribute the rest of the owed money due to the drop in income they are set to suffer themselves.

Counties were promised an annual £1.3million each when the ECB launched the Hundred

Last week, all 18 counties submitted their financial models for the season to the ECB based on various scenarios, including the worst case of no cricket being played at all this summer.

As well as the Hundred payments, they fear a major loss of revenue if the T20 Blast is not able to take place this season.

Friday’s ECB board meeting is also likely to decide that the tournament, which was due to start on May 28, is being postponed until later in the summer.

The county chief added: ‘Everybody is desperate to get a Blast season in because that is the cricket that will generate the most revenue. It becomes really difficult if there is no Blast.

‘It will be very challenging. We would be OK, but I can’t say that would be the case for all the counties — the Blast revenues for some counties are enormous.’

The inside story of Greg Jennings breaking his leg in ‘Madden’ YouTube video

On April 18, 2010, Greg Jennings put the team on his back doe.

If you aren’t aware of the famous YouTube clip, then you’ve been missing out for all these years. You can watch the video below, but be warned: it contains explicit language.

The video sat on YouTube for a while with minimal views before finally exploding in October 2010. Since then, it has become a well-known video, amassing over 14 million views. The video itself wouldn’t be that entertaining if not for the man narrating it.

That man is Demetry James and he provided his backstory for this video to Kotaku back in 2011 . The best part of this story, which you don’t see in the video, is that James was already winning by 22 points. This was the last play of the game and it was completely unnecessary for him to try to score.

But this is “Madden” we’re talking about. If you’re not trying to score at all times, then why are you even playing? 

“You know, I was surprised he even caught the ball,” James told Kotaku. “All I was doing was looking for the open man. I saw he was open and threw it, and then I saw him limping and realized, that’s Greg Jennings, the guy got a broken leg! There were four or five of us friends playing ‘Madden’ that day, all of us watching, and then all of a sudden we’re all dying laughing. Oh, my God.”

As for the final phrase at the end of the video (“F— you, Gumby!”), James explained that Gumby is his lifetime friend. Although the video kind of ruined Gumby’s life. His other friends would constantly utter that phrase at him.

“They don’t even say ‘How you doing?'” James told Kotaku. “Not ‘Hello,’ not ‘Good morning,’ not ‘Hey, man, what’s the score?’ just ‘F— you, Gumby.'”

The video became so popular in “Madden” culture that the game developers even put in an achievement called “Put Da Team on Your Back” for the 2011-12 season. In order to accomplish this, you had to score a 99-yard touchdown with Jennings.

The video also made its way to Jennings, who commented on it several times.

“I thought it was the sweetest thing ever. I am like, ‘I finally made it.’ I don’t know if I was ever going to make it in football, but I made it on YouTube. The guy [who made the video] is the best,” Jennings said on George Lopez’s former late-night show.

The former Packers receiver said some of his teammates used to make fun of him for it, but he also said that when he played against the Falcons, he had to hear Thomas DeCoud say “Put your team on your back” every single play. 

“It was fun to watch a lot of guys show me that in practice. I think the guy who put it together is more funny than the actual footage,” Jennings said of the video during Super Bowl media night . “I think it’s a unique video.” 

Unfortunately, “Madden” updated its rules on injured players that allowed this video to happen in the first place, so it’s unlikely we ever get a moment like this again.
